* WesternAnimation/StarWarsRebels has a justified example in the season 3 premier, as [[spoiler:Kanan]] is now blind and doesn't know about the giant spider they're walking towards until they touch it, then the camera pans over.

* PlayedForLaughs in the ''Gunslinger'' episode of ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000''. After observing a character in the movie engage in OffscreenTeleportation (due to poor editing), the characters do a sketch where Servo explains that he can do this as well by exploiting quantum mechanics. His "teleportation" is clearly just him exiting one side of the screen while another Servo puppet enters from the other side. Nevertheless, Joel and Crow initially look off camera wondering where he went.

This also comes up in a gunfight late in the movie, where people go into and come out of buildings in impossible ways; the Riffers claim it's actually the movie integrating the fact the town is just a set of false fronts.

* In ''Series/{{Blackadder}} II'' episode "Head," Blackadder ducks in and out of a prison cell to interrogate Lady Farrow about the distinguishing features of her husband so he can impersonate him (having beheaded him ahead of schedule). There's an open grille above the door and everyone inside is within view of the door, but somehow Lady Farrow doesn't overhear the frantic conversation within, nor do they hear what she's saying to Blackadder, even though that ''does'' seem to happen with Queenie at the end. (But who cares; it's still hilarious.)

* Parodied with [[EverybodyCallsHimBarkeep Teacher]] in ''Eiken'', the Eiken club's chaperone whom Densuke never noticed until 11 chapters in because she's so unnoticable. It's implied she was there the whole time (but she only appeared then because [[{{Retcon}} the author needed someone in the school to keep an eye on them]]).

** Some games have very simple cameras. ''VideoGame/{{Oni}}'' did not push the camera in or clip outside walls, so you could swing it right through walls and see all kinds of things (or block your view with the other side of the wall Konoko's backed up against!). Since this bug wasn't fixed with ''VideoGame/{{Halo}}'''s 3rd-person vehicle camera, it might be the reason why ''Halo'' became a FPS.

** [[LampShade LampShaded]] in ''The Next Doctor'', as Cybermen - whose every step is accompanied by loud metalic "thunks" - somehow manage to sneak up on the Doctor. He doesn't notice them until they are in view of the camera. He then accuses them:
-->'''Doctor:''' Woah! Thatís cheating, sneaking up. Do you have your legs on silent?

* ''Series/DeadliestCatch'': A US Coast Guard cutter managed to sneak up on the Northwestern to administer a (surprise?) inspection. Sig and company wondered how [[FailedASpotCheck they'd missed seeing it coming]].

* In ''Film/TheDarkKnight'', Batman manages to hide from an entire dinner party (including SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker) until the camera pans slightly to the right and he's suddenly ''there''. (Of course, this is ''[[StealthHiBye Batman]]'' we're talking about here.)

** A similar thing happens at the beginning of Snowdin, when the player character hides behind a Conveniently Shaped Lamp to hide from Papyrus. The lamp is a pixel-perfect silhouette match for the player character, but since Papyrus (unlike the player) is not viewing the scene directly from the south, he should be able to see the player character standing next to the lamp.
